About Us

The Rouse family purchased Trelawny Resort in 2021, and Trelawny South Resort in 2022.

Hello Trelawny Family,
My name is Howie Rouse and my family and I are privileged to be the new owners of Trelawny Resorts. My wife, Gail, and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have 3 children who are either in college or serving as missionaries overseas.
Trelawny Resort Owners, Howard Rouse and family We bought Trelawny because I love Michigan. For the first 15 years of my life, I lived in Lapeer before my family relocated to St. Louis. From the day I was born virtually every summer weekend was spent at our cabin on Lake Huron between Oscoda and Tawas. This cabin has been in our family for 75 years and my mother lives there today. Over the past 40 years since leaving Michigan I have lived in St Louis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Tokyo, and Dallas but no matter how far I wander my heart calls me back “Up North”.
Trelawny is special. We were touched by the stories of families that have vacationed at Trelawny FOR GENERATIONS. I came to realize that many guests have built the same memories at Trelawny that my family built at our cabin in Tawas over the past 75 years.
We are excited to keep this going! I am a firm believer that the most important work any of us will ever do is within the walls of our own homes. My goal is to continue to provide you with a wonderful place to do that work.
We look forward to hosting you soon!
